GSBS at RWJMS Senior Associate Dean Announcement
Dr. Millonig Appointed Senior Associate Dean for the Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (GSBS at RWJMS)
I am delighted to announce the appointment of James H Millonig, PhD, associate professor of neuroscience and cell biology to Senior Associate Dean for the GSBS at RWJMS, effective October 15, 2013. Dr. Millonig joined the faculty of RWJMS in 1999 as a resident member of the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine. In 2010, he accepted the position of Assistant Dean of Medical Scientist Training and Director of the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School - Princeton University MD/PhD program, positions that he will maintain with his new appointment. In his new role as Senior Associate Dean, he will assume responsibility for the biomedical PhD and Masters programs at GSBS at RWJMS and work closely with the GSBS Dean and the GSBS Newark divisions as well as with the Rutgers Graduate School New Brunswick and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at RWJMS.
Dr. Terri Goss Kinzy, Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology & Pediatrics at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, has served as Senior Associate Dean of GSBS at RWJMS since October 2007. During her tenure, Dr. Kinzy has made influential contributions to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and we owe her a great deal of gratitude for her many contributions to our school. I know you all join me as we wish Dr. Kinzy much success in her new role as Associate Vice President for Research Administration at Rutgers, a role to which she will bring the same degree of commitment and energy that she has brought to GSBS over the years.
Dr. Millonig’s research, teaching, and leadership skills will be invaluable as he takes on his new responsibilities. His internationally recognized research investigates the molecular and cell biological basis of autism. He has made significant contributions to understanding the role of the transcription factor ENGRAILED 2 in autism susceptibility. He is a standing member of the National Institutes of Health study section for developmental brain disorders and received a 2012 Thomas Edison Patent award for his research. He and his collaborators were recently awarded a NJ Autism Center of Excellence grant to generate and characterize stem cells from individuals with autism.
Dr. Millonig earned his doctorate degree at Princeton University, where he was a student with Shirley M Tilghman PhD, a National Academy of Sciences member and the immediate past president of Princeton University. He completed his postdoctoral training in developmental neurobiology in the laboratory of Mary E Hatten, PhD at The Rockefeller University in New York.
Dr. James Millonig brings to this position a notable research background, effective administrative skills and a strong commitment to GSBS. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Millonig on his appointment as Senior Associate Dean of the Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
